Even if you don’t agree with Fox News Channel politics, there’s value in knowing how to watch a Fox News live stream to know both sides of an issue, especially given its current importance to the Trump administration and to the Republican Party. After all, President Trump spends some of his “executive time” watching Fox News.

What is Fox News?

Fox News is a conservative news channel owned by Fox News Media. Founded in 1996, the channel is known for its strong Republican bias. Fox News was the top-rated cable network of 2019 with an average of 2.5 million viewers. Its most popular shows are Hannity, Tucker Carlson Tonight, The Five, The Ingraham Angle, and Special Report with Bret Baier.

If you want to watch a Fox News live stream for free, there’s no easier way to do it than LiveNewsNow. Since 2015, and formerly known as LiveNewsOn, the site has offered a live stream of Fox News in surprisingly clear HD. It’s less clear why the site hasn’t been shut down by Fox News, or any of the other news sites it features (MSNBC, CNN, etc.), but we’re not complaining. If you’re watching on a desktop or your phone, LiveNewsOn makes it easy to go full screen or to “cast” to your TV using Google Chromecast.
